Family.  Kin.  Stock.  Race.  Clan.  Tribe.   It might be your mother and father, sisters and brother. You might all live in the same home; you may live in many different homes. Your family might be who you live with even though you are not related. Your family might be made of your closest friends and neighbors.

I (Sincerely, Emily) have a rather small immediate family, but yet I have quite a large family when you get right down to it. In July I talked about going to Erie, PA for a family reunion on my husband’s side of the family. There were 60+ people there. Most of which I have never met. It was a lot of fun. Over the past few years I have been able to spend a bit more time with my mom’s side of the family.  That was a blast. It seemed we all just fit right in and caught up on life and had a lot of fun. Last week I re-connected with a childhood friend that I haven’t seen in 10 years and it was so much fun.

I have a group of female friends– Nancy, Sheila, Lynn, Susan, MP, Kaikay, Holly, Maggie, Chris. I call them the “sisters,” they are people with whom I connected immediately and permanently. In one corner of my heart I believe that they are sisters from my past lives. Here are Kaikay (with a very young Alexandra, oh my), Lynn, and MP.

What does Family mean to you?

Family comes in all shapes and sizes, as do the activities we do with our family members. Whether it be a day of shopping or months of baby shower planning, time spent with family is priceless.

“My daughter.” Was there ever a more beautiful phrase? I spent the day with mine yesterday: Giant junk store, $3 BLT, driving down country roads in the blinding rain. What’s not to like. —Xan

“My Sisters.” What an unusual and glorious phrase for an only child. I am an only child, but have 2 half sisters, 2 nephew, 2 neices, 4 step-sisters and 2 sisters in law. It’s a chorus line, and there’s a new little nephew on the way. I’m having such fun helping my “little sister” with the baby, from shower invitations to baby hats and a felted mobile. I’m also lucky to have one of my half sisters and (favorite) niece in town for a few days this Summer. – Miranda

My family lives far, far away… but, I did spend some time with them a few weeks ago up in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Even though there is never enough time to do everything I want, we did have a good time. I posted some addition photos over at Sincerely, Emily a few days ago.

How do you like to spend your family time?
